THE A grade Kalamunda league team recorded an impressive away victory against Fremantle CBC on Saturday, to kick-start the second half of the season.

Despite losing captain John Armstrong early with a hamstring injury and Steven Outridge later breaking his collarbone, the Cougars never looked in doubt with Steve Armstrong dangerous up forward and Matthew Outridge continuously showing his class in the middle.

Trent Pottinger was again among the Cougars’ top players, doing as he pleased on a wing as the boys won 13.11 (89) to 5.10 (40).

A luckless reserves team, who lost two key players to injury in the first quarter, lost by 64 points, with Tom Mckay playing well and Lochie Luckens involved in everything, winning best on ground honours.

Earlier, captain Angus Saastamoinen was best afield for the colts, with Sammy Hodgkins also among the awards, but the boys unfortunately went down by nine goals.

This Saturday at Ray Owen Reserve, the Cougars are hosting a fundraiser for Heart Kids WA.
